How to watch India vs New Zealand Test Championship Final live in Australia
Top-ranked New Zealand and number 2 India face off for world cricket supremacy in the first World Test Championship final.
Following 2 long years of top-shelf cricketing competition right across the globe, battling a pandemic along the way, the World Test Championship finale is here. At the end of it all, New Zealand and India were the teams left standing.
A concept that took over a decade to come to fruition faced enormous hurdles virtually from start to finish. But the finish line is here, with the 25,000-seat Ageas Bowl chosen as the venue as it has a hotel attached and was considered the safest option to create a "bubble".
When is the World Test Championship?
The inaugural World Test Championship final is being held over 5 days from 18–22 June, with a reserve day on 23 June available if time is lost. Starting at 7:30pm AEST each day, it is being held at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, England.

Who will win the World Test Championship final?
The top 9 Test nations played out a 2-year schedule, starting with the 2019 Ashes series. A number of teams were in contention for the final, with Australia and England rounding out the top 4. A handful of series were also cancelled along the way due to the pandemic.
But the form of New Zealand and India was undeniable, with both proud nations finishing strongly to guarantee their places in the decider. A fresh looking Kiwi side will be led by outstanding batsman Kane Williamson and a balanced bowling line-up.
The Indians will of course enjoy fervent support, with Virat Kohli aiming to cap a successful era under his leadership with another major honour. It's a very tight match to call and the Kiwis won't be bothered by the English conditions. But we think India have a touch more match-winners in their squad and could sneak home on day 5.
